Death Valley—The Production
Ok, the name itself, Death Valley, seems to be an anathema to the positive aspects of my HDSereneScapes films. That being said, I think this film comes together as a very uplifting experience that I hope you all will enjoy.
The location of the film, Death Valley National Park in California, is one vast and amazing place. It can be for-boding, it is desolate and bleak, it is a place of little moisture, barren rock, sand and salt. When I stood in the open spaces of this desert landscape, I often felt I was are going back in time, imagining what life, or lack of it, looked like to the first visitors to this place. Going back further in time, imagining what made the Valley, a once massive lake now depleted to smooth and crusted salt flats, is a real mind expanding experience. The reality that this planet was not created in six thousand years (as some believe) is ever present.
